My husband had skied in Aspen many years ago and always wanted to go back with the kids(15 & 13) and I, so we decided to head over in March this year. The Gant was recommended by a travel agent, after researching on Tripadvisor and reading good reviews we decided to take their advise. We can't speak highly enough of the Gant, it was fantastic. I feel compelled to right this review because I relied so heavily on the reviews I read on Tripadvisor during our 3 weeks travelling thru the U.S. after the 2 weeks in Aspen. The staff was unbelievably helpful, the condo was lovely. Having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms was nice so we weren't fighting for the shower. The kitchen was well appointed, we cooked most of the time as we are fussy eaters and like to cook our own healthy food, excellent washing machine and dyer and plenty of space to store skis and boots as well as air ski gear overnight. It was an easy level 2 blocks walk from the main shopping area. The complimentry shuttle was awesome, running continually during peak times (8am-10am & 3pm - 5pm) dropping you metres from the Silver Queen gondola, or at the bus station for connection to Highlands, Butermilk and Snowmass and on call at other times, just a phone call and they were there, this made it easy to grocery shop and get it all back to the condo. The kids loved their own room and TV, and spent hours in the heated pool after a days skiing. We loved skiing in Aspen so much we want to go back next year, after researching we have found that for our circumstances we couldn't beat the Gant. There are cheaper places but no where near as appointed or with the space of the Gant. There was only one hiccup with some very noisy people in the condo above us who were very inconsiderate, we are by no means party poopers but when you can hear music, thumping from dancing and conversations loud enough to hear every word until 2.30 in the morning we felt that was unfair when we had travelled half way around the world and wanted to get up early to ski. At first the Gant offered to move us but with 4 people and ski gear this would have been a major operation and we felt it unfair to make us move when we had already been there for a week and weren't the ones causing the problem. After 2 nights the Gant solved the problem, not sure if they were moved the others or just told to tone it down but we heard no more noise. Can't wait to go back.
